The American junior team this past year at the world championship was very good and loaded with potential. But I doubt most of these players will be ready in 4 years. They will be like 22-24. Just a bit to young. But it depends if the NHLPA will want approve of it's players going to the Olympics after 2010.
Ryan Miller is the goalie of the future for your American team. Not that piece of crap Esche or the 1st round bust DiPietro.
